What Is PRP?

PRP—short for platelet rich plasma—is a rich concentration of platelets extracted from a patient’s own body. These special platelet cells promote healing, accelerate regeneration, and encourage new cell growth. In addition to being a very safe treatment, PRP injections are one of the hottest and most promising cosmetic treatments.

To obtain the plasma used for treatment, a small amount of blood is extracted. The platelets are concentrated and then used for treatment.

What Can PRP Do for Me?

Dr. Matarasso is excited to offer PRP treatments to his patients for both skin rejuvenation and hair restoration. Ask us if either of these revolutionary treatments are right for you.

  • PRP for Hair Restoration- Preliminary studies suggest that PRP could be a beneficial treatment for patients experiencing hair loss. PRP may stimulate hair follicles, encouraging regrowth and stimulating certain components in the hair follicles. There are a few different available protocols for PRP hair restoration, making this treatment an option for patients in many different situations.
  • PRP for Skin Rejuvenation- PRP contains many components that are essential to wound healing. When used for skin rejuvenation, PRP stimulates the body’s healing response to promote collagen and elastin production. The PRP is applied topically and followed with a microneedling treatment. This creates micro-channels deep into the skin, allowing the growth factors and plasma to penetrate for optimal healing. This treatment can smooth fine lines and wrinkles, fade scars, and rejuvenate the skin.
